This is the first year that I have participated in Grant Farms Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). My older daughter, Megan, and I decided to try it this year and we’ve enjoyed the fruit and vegetable surprises each week.
Kohlrabi was not a new vegetable to me but I haven’t had it since I lived at home on the farm. My Mother would slice it and eat it raw with salt. It reminds me of a very crisp, slightly sweet, potato. However, I wanted to try something different and decided to roast it with a few red and gold beets, also in my CSA delivery.
The leftovers were equally good served chilled. Is this my favorite vegetable recipe? No, but I’m always up for a new adventure and I enjoyed it.
